Sun in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra
Sun in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra people can be present on either end of the goodness spectrum. Depending on the development of their soul, they’ll either be the most soulful, spiritual person to exist in their social circle or be the cunning scammer that tricks everyone in their vicinity. This placement is quite volatile in the sense of the effect it has on people, which happens because this Nakshatra is represented through a two-faced entity.
The two-faced aspect works in such a way that the personality of the person shows duality. They might be someone who’s completely devoted to the cause of spirituality, practicing it mentally and physically daily. On the other hand, they might be someone who portrays that they love spirituality just to trick people into believing a certain something.
This kind of thing also translates to their career, in both a positive and negative sense. These people can have two different careers at the same time. Oftentimes, they’re working a secret career or a job that no one else knows about. Detectives, spies, and undercover agents usually have this Nakshatra placement. A pretty good placement for someone that wants to get into these professions. However, the real distinction occurs when we look at what sign is in influence. When it’s Aquarius, the person will be making successful gains through society and other people. When it’s Pisces, the person will be more directed towards spiritualism.
Moon in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra
Moon in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra people are newbies to the world of spiritualism. This Nakshatra placement shows someone that is taking their first step in the world of spiritualism. They might just have watched a spiritual Gurus video and decided that they should start taking classes for spiritualism. These people are very excited and inclined when it comes to gaining higher knowledge and are collectors of information. The presence of the Moon in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra also develops an interest in the mystic side of life in these people, where these people might develop a knack for the darker things in life.
Depending on what sign they’re influenced by, there can be different personality traits. Under the effect of Aquarius, these people will use their mystical and spiritual knowledge for the betterment of mankind. That’ll be the higher goal they want to achieve in life. Whereas in Pisces, they are willing to use their knowledge to guide others, and themselves, into spiritual development.
Yet, the Purva Bhadrapada represents the dual-faced nature of a person. That’s why these people turn into frauds or cheat if their placement is a bit malefic. In the spiritual world, they’ll be fake gurus that guide their students into false teaching of spirituality.
Mercury in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra
Mercury in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra people have a high aptitude for financial success in life but can have trouble navigating the waters of their personal life. Mercury is quite in an average position here concerning its dignity. The planet is in enemy territory, the Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra, ruled by Jupiter. Yet, it’s influenced by a friendly sign, which neutralizes this position and brings its dignity to a more acceptable, common level. That’s why these people live a dormant life, where they might find success in their career life but come across trouble in communication and socialization with their friends. The opposite, however, can also hold in this context.
The higher level of the Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra can create a lot of genuine spiritual traits in a person. Especially in the sign of Pisces, the people will have a strong hold over the concepts of spirituality, as Pisces itself also translates to pure spirituality. Yet, when Aquarius is the influencing sign, their spirituality takes a more business-oriented approach. In that case, spirituality will become a part of their business dealing and won’t be just bounded to their personal development.
However, the lower part of this Nakshatra can be troublesome. In that region, people can easily be influenced, by their deep, inner voices, to become fraudsters. These people become really good actors when milking their benefits and become insanely good at deceiving others for their good.
Venus in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra
Venus in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra people will gain status and wealth through their spouse. While this is true for both men and women, it’s more evident in males. Right after their marriage, the natives will have a sudden growth in the financial area of life, which, in turn, increases their status as well. This also explains why the spouse, which is the wife in this context, is always in control. The animal that is associated with this Nakshatra is a lion. In Vedic Astrology, this always translates to the fact that the spouse will be in total control. For the males reading this, this means that the wife is the one that’s going to be running the house.
Yet, despite being dominant, the native’s spouse is a self-doubting person. They’re someone that doesn’t realize their beauty, which means a lot of reassurance has to be given from the native’s side. They’ll feel like they’re not worthy of the blessings that have been bestowed upon them. In fact, due to this self-doubt, they’ll often question your love for them. Adding to the traits of the spouse, they’re very good at meditation and Yoga. All of the physical aspects of spirituality come very easily to the spouse, which makes them not only spiritual but athletic as well.
Mars in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra
Mars in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra people will direct their actions into pursuing spiritual education. Mars is a planet that loves physical and mental exertion.

This is why people that possess this Nakshatra love to go out of their way and pursue spirituality. They love to do the physical exercises that are associated with spirituality, such as Yoga and many other forms. They love to meditate and be involved with others as they get higher knowledge regarding the versatile domain of spirituality and occultism.
Their actions and their pursuits depend on what sign the planet is in this Nakshatra. In the sign of Aquarius, these people will go into the entrepreneur side of life and use their spiritual energy to create a business for themselves. On the other hand, there’s the influence of Pisces. In that section, these people are more inclined to help others and themselves spiritually. They’ll use the things they’ve learned about spirituality and shape others and themselves into a higher self.
Yet, there’s a catch. That energy exchange we talked about in the beginning? Depending upon the dignity of the planet, it can prove to be quite troublesome. People that don’t have control over their beliefs and tendencies can adopt a fundamentalistic approach in their life. They’ll create their own set of spiritual and religious beliefs and follow them, listening to no one else but themselves.
Jupiter in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra
Jupiter in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra people have a very strong inclination towards gaining higher knowledge of spirituality. Jupiter sits in its own Nakshatra here, which makes this position quite strong. These people get a sudden urge to gain spiritual knowledge in their life in an attempt to gain more peace and satisfaction mentally. This pairing of Jupiter and the Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra often promises mysterious and spiritual moments in the life of those who pursue it, where people have narrated detailed, unusual experiences they’ve gone through.
Let’s talk about when Jupiter is in Aquarius. For the young, modern generation, this goes to show that they will use technology to share knowledge with others. Provide others with guidance that’s hard to grasp alone. These people are all about serving others with higher knowledge and providing them with the counsel they need to get on track.
Under the effect of Pisces, things are different. Instead of serving others and providing them with guidance, these people are more self-centered, but in a good way. They’ll take all the knowledge they need to bring an evolution within themselves.
But, the double-faced aspect of this Nakshatra is often shown in their broken views of religion. It creeps up into their personal life as well. These people don’t have much luck in maintaining relationships with friends and family, as breakups and splits come quite often to these people.
Saturn in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra people are enthusiasts for the study of science. Their enthusiasm involves sacrificing all other aspects of their life if it means that they can pursue the technicalities of science in their life. Under the influence of Aquarius, these people are highly practical. The ones that put their knowledge to practical use, such as changing the situations of the society, increasing their financial status, and many other things. That’s why careers like analytical researchers, teachers, gurus, professors, and many other practical career fields are observed from this Nakshatra placement, involving the long-revolution planet Saturn and the Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra.
Besides that, these people are socially active. In the new age of modern technology, these are the people you see online that become social activists. People bring about change in society by using technology to an advantage. They possess an intrinsic personality trait that does not let them rest without doing something to change the dystopian society we’re crumbling towards.
In the case of Pisces, these people are more inclined towards spiritualism than any other Purva Bhadrapada placement. This kind of Saturn takes a person’s interest and whirls it towards the mystics of the spiritual realm. However, the urge to do something for society always comes first for these people. It will always precede their strong inclination towards spirituality.
Rahu in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra
Rahu in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra people undergoes positive self-development stages in this Nakshatra. Rahu, in this context, is the significator of materialistic obsessions. It’s the culmination of desires that roots from within, the likes of which have a worldly tint on it. People in this Nakshatra will still have crazy obsessions, but in this position, they will be directed more towards attaining a positive sense of spirituality in their minds and gaining mental and physical peace. This position works at its optimal level when the native is devoted to the cause of spirituality.
However, even though these people are undergoing positive development in their life, they experience an inferiority complex. This is quite common when someone is changing the way they behave and act, especially regarding financial status. The native with this placement will feel like their status isn’t high enough compared to their peers, whether it’s in financial terms, education, or spiritual capacity.
Additionally, concerning society, these people have a lot of responsibilities to handle. They’ll feel like they owe a change to the society they live in and the conditions the people are living in. Saturn, the co-influencer in this position, pushes the native to help the society, and the native does not get mental satisfaction until they do what Saturn asks them to do.
Ketu In Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra
Ketu in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra people experiences familiarity when they’re exercising spirituality. It doesn’t matter if they’re doing it for the first time or not, and they experience an intrinsic familiarity with it. That’s because Ketu is a manifestation of a past life. When in the Nakshatra of split personalities and spiritual experiences, it points to the fact that these people have already experienced initialization of spiritual experience in their past life. That’s why for them, everything feels reiterated. Things feel like something they’ve already done. Spiritual practices don’t take long to get accustomed to because they’ve already been through it in their past life.
In another sense, this placement also means that to experience that spiritual bliss, they’ll need to go to higher lengths than other people. They’ve already experienced this sort of thing in their past life, and to do so twice isn’t an easy feat. They’ll have to put in twice as much work to get to a mentally stable and peaceful mindset.
It’s hard to distinguish who’s who with this placement, especially with the effect of Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra, the Nakshatra of two faces. There’s a high chance that the native has given up on the ordeals of spirituality and is now conning others with their twisted beliefs for their benefit. However, if that isn’t the case, then the native will either serve people to do a business out of it or use spirituality for their personal development.
